FLUSHED AWAY (Theatrical Release USA 2006)

 Ben Meyers’ Rating: 3.7|5.0 Starsììì 

Flushed Away—while other films like An American Tale or Teenage Mutant Turtles can get away with settings resting in the sewer, somehow this movie cannot manage that setting.  The animation is good, but the setting of the entire movie keeps getting in the way of the story itself. The characters cannot establish lovability or likeableness and that lack hampers the story’s appeal.

A pet rat gets a taste of living on the rougher side of town that includes not only rats but a toad with plans of its own.

Maybe. The film lacks charm and basic appeal.
